Strep throat or pharyngitis will be characterized by pain when swallowing. Inflammation can also occur in tonsils, so called tonsillopharyngitis. In this condition will be accompanied by complaints of a lump in the base of the oral cavity and snoring during sleep. This disease is most often caused by a viral infection. If healing is slow, it can be accompanied by a bacterial infection within a few days later, which is characterized by a thick white phlegm cough.
In addition, it can also make the mouth of the connecting channel between the nose and ears become inflamed. So that the channel is closed and causes pressure difference in the middle ear. This pressure difference causes inflammation in the middle ear which is characterized by pain. If this condition continues, it can cause rupture of the eardrum.
You can prevent bacterial infections by regularly gargling with salt water. You can also ease the symptoms of sore throat by consuming warm water. Also consume honey mixed with lemon juice brewed with warm water. The content of vitamin C in it will help the healing process. Also take over-the-counter painkillers, such as Paracetamol. Perform a swallowing motion to help open the channel between the nose and ears. Or, you can also do it by exhaling forcefully with your ears and mouth closed.
If the complaint has not improved in 3 days or the ear pain is getting stronger you can consult an ENT doctor. In order to do related examinations and get the right treatment. The doctor may need to give anti-inflammatory drugs nasal spray and antibiotics.
Thus hopefully useful.
